14-16 July 2023 @ Stage 1, PJPAC, 1 Utama E

‘Ulek Mayang’ (one of Malaysia’s oldest art forms) and ‘Puteri Saadong’ are treasured traditional Malay folk dances/tales. You fuse VIVA Vertical aerial artists and HANDS Percussion with those tales, and you begin to wonder … what the possibilities are. Our first engagement with VIVA was during the 16th Hua Zong Literature Awards in 2022. In SAKTI, a first full collaboration, we work to synergize our art forms to create our own magical interpretations of these tales. Excerpts from these stories will be danced above the stage with aerial acrobatics and grounded by contemporary music on the Chinese drums, percussions, gamelan and other instruments. Expect our drummers in a new challenge of expressing their artistry through skillfully choreographed aerial acrobatics (hanging from specialist fabric) accompanied by both rearranged and new Malay compositions.

30 Nov - 3 Dec 2023 @ Pentas 1, KLPAC

RhapsoDrums was the 2nd concert held by Hands Percussion Team 2 in 2010. Established in 2005 the group has progressed tremendously and have matured into a professional percussion group. Comprising of part-time percussionists with full-time jobs, the dedication and sacrifice for their craft over these past 15 years have been incredible for the young group. They can now compose and choreograph independently and so brilliantly such as two key compositions for Kaleidoscope 6 i.e. ‘Concurrent Double-strike’ and ‘Woodland of Sound’. This has led to the upcoming launch of their very own identity, ‘RhapsoD in Drums’ in 2023 also marking their 18th anniversary with a concert of the same name. It will include compositions by the group, Jimmy Ch’ng, Olivier Tarpaga and others. Guest appearances include DeafBeat and children from Kampung Orang Asli, Batang Kali.
